Scout Troop 62 helps with Antietam Creek cleanup

October 05, 2008

The Antietam Creek Watershed Alliance is an organization made up of citizens concerned for the local watershed. The mission is to protect and promote Antietam Creek through education, preservation and hands-on projects. The alliance continues to maintain updated data on the sate of the watershed and other opportunities to improve its health for everyone's benefit.

Service projects and all aspects of conservation go hand in hand with the Boy Scouts. On Sept. 13, Boy Scouts from Troop 62, Chewsville, joined forces with the alliance to clear trash and other items from Antietam Creek in the third annual rubbish roundup. River and Trail Outfitters is one of the sponsor of this event.
